Today I received my limited edition version of the Copernisis puzzle which is the 3rd in the Isis series. Unlike previous Isis puzzles this one is mathematical in nature but you still need to do some out of the box thinking with it. Information and clues can be found in the instruction book and official web site.

I know. I checked the website and the company is only selling the limited edition one for that much because there is only ONE left and they want to keep it for historical references hence the massive price tag.

Can you explain what it is? I understand it is some sort of puzzle but may you expand on the problem you must solve and mechanics of it?

Thanks :D

When I ordered this Limited Edition it cost £142.66, I guess they felt the need to greatly increase the price for the final one (they only made 150 of them). I also have a standard one coming. They are planning on soon making an “extreme” version which is said to be more difficult. I plan on getting one of them too.

The Isis puzzles have been hidden mechanism puzzles, meaning that there are things going on inside the puzzles that you can’t see but must figure out. The Isis and Ramisis (Isis II) were very different from each other and this new one is different from both of them. That is something I’ve grown to appreciate with this series. You should be able to find some older posts here about the other puzzles.

This puzzle has 5 moving “planets” which can be moved in their respective slots, each with a number of positions which they click into place at. Also, the entire base of the puzzle can be rotated 360 degrees and there are 8 slots in it where you can sometimes see places where things may pop out or push in. I do not yet know the equation which creates the mathematical relationships in this puzzle. Discovering that is part of the solution. My understanding is that the first step is to somehow discover and open a small secret compartment which has an important clue inscribed in it. There are also clues buried in the information contained in the 2 links I posted above.

There is now an Extrene version which is more difficult than the Standard or Limited editions. It is also very limited and I was told that there are only 14 left.
